Need transport and a guide? Check out Black Diamond Safaris the club field specialists. New Zealand club fields are regarded as the best off piste terrain accessible from a lift opening up thousands of possible runs. The BDS guides make sure you do not miss out on experiencing the terrain you might not ever find on your own. The guides will instruct on the use of the rope tow/nutcracker so your days are spent hunting fresh snow and not struggling with the lift and we will outfit you in our personally designed rope tow harness to simplify this task.
